Mr. Speaker, the minister took over two months, two tulip festivals, before appointing a negotiator. That makes no sense.
Can the minister, who today is appointing a negotiator, tell the House what his mandate will be in meeting the Quebec negotiator, when the negotiator will report to the minister and when the minister will report to the House? It is time to stop beating about the bush. Tulip time has arrived, and we need a solution.
